J. K. Rowling and the commercial side of painting no. 1

This week J. K. Rowling admitted that a mystery novel published last year was indeed her creation. Apparently at the point her identity was revealed, the novel had sold 1,500 copies.

This makes me perversely happy in that it points out that commercial success and quality work have virtually no connection.

Paint on!

These studio notes are scraps of poetry and ideas that feed my work as a painter. I hope they establish a bit of context for the paintings and my intention in making them. Whatever I paint, I’m trying to create some space for us to sit with the questions that are not meant to be answered.
